Associated article: The Pentium F00F Bug
Tags: Embedded Systems
UnpPublished source code and related files accompanying the article by Robert R. Collins in which he describes the x86 "F00F" bug. When any x86 processor encounters an invalid instruction, the processor is supposed to generate an invalid opcode exception. If this mechanism fails, however, the errant program can bring down the system--and that's just what happens when the Pentium encounters the "F00F" bug. Requires UNZIP/PKUNZIP to extract.
